The River that Flows
This year’s event is based on a book by local author Tiarn Florence and illustrator Joolie Gibbs, titled The River that Flows.
2023 theme is BUGS AND CREEPY CRAWLIES
Little Kids Day Out is excited to announce our Picture Book Writing Competition!
The theme is “Bugs and Creepy Crawlies” – whether real or imaginary. We encourage you to incorporate a safety aspect in your storyline with Child Protection Week in mind.
You can submit your entry via Dropbox (for digital books) or submit a hardcopy to the library (for paper books). The submission deadline is Friday, June 23, 2023.
The winner will receive a professional printed copy of their book at LKDO2023.
This competition is open to individuals and groups/schools/classes. The age of the illustrator and author will be taken into account when judging. A selection panel of local professionals will be judging the entries.
A selection of shortlisted books will be displayed at LKDO2023 on September 2, 2023, at the Gympie Pavilion.
All hard copy submissions can be collected from the LKDO2023 event.
We can’t wait to see your creative and imaginative entries! Good luck!
